The New Kings Carnival Project
DOCA is excited to be working with Ginkgo projects on a community event aimed at residents of the new Kings Gate estate in Amesbury, with thanks to Arts Council England, Bloor Homes and Amesbury Area Board for funding.
DOCA led a new partnership to create a spectacular entry for Amesbury Carnival, which also appeared at Devizes Carnival on July 13th 2019, with the Woolly Mammoth. The project was funded by Bloor Homes, Arts Council England and Amesbury Area Board.
DOCA was contracted by Ginkgo Projects to manage this exciting project. Ginkgo are an independent public art and cultural producer driven by a desire to create vision and experience led opportunities for artists and creative practitioners working closely with clients, design teams and communities to build and reveal an authentic sense of narrative, place and distinctiveness within both urban and rural environments.
We worked in Kings Gate, a new estate in Amesbury where over 4,200 homes have been built creating a new community, many of whom are military families. The project aimed to create and engage the new community & connect them with the existing residents & the heritage of the local area.
We created an exciting project which will be delivered by Beautiful Creatures Theatre with a group of local people of all ages to create an exciting entry in the 2019 Amesbury Carnival.
